Forest Service / BLM


Campground Details

Open: Late May - Early September
Number of Sites: 29

About: There are 29 sites that allow tents, campers, trailers, and RVs, though the sites are better-suited for tent camping than for trailers or RVs due to the unpaved roads, steep hills and short pull-ins. All sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Picnic tables, fire rings, and portable toilets are provided. There is no drinking water, electrical hook-ups, dump stations, or showers. A maximum of eight people are allowed per site. Although not a full-service campground, Meeker Park Overflow Campground tends to fill to capacity on weekends due to its proximity to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Longs Peak Trailhead is approximately two miles north of the campground, and the Wild Basin Trailhead is about two miles to the south.

Fees: Campsite fees are $9 per night. Interagency Senior, Interagency Access, Golden Age and Golden Access passes provide cardholders a 50% discount on campground fees. (2011)

Usage: Heavy

Water: None

Restrooms: Poratable Toilet

Restrictions: Pets must be on a hand-held leash at all times. A maximum of eight people are allowed per site. RVs, trailers or other vehicles must fit on the parking spur.

Directions: The campground is located on the west side of Colorado Highway 7 at mile-marker 11. It is approximately 10 miles north of the intersection of Colorado Highways 7 and 72 (which is 21 miles west-north-west of Lyons), 13 miles south of Estes Park, and 31 miles north of Nederland.
